Question: Why a Premier Party for Episode 2?
Answer: Tat was out of town for our actual Annual Premier Party date, so we had to postpone it a week.
Question: What's up with Episode 2 being canceled?
Answer: The VP debates...although they ended at like 8pm...and for WHATEVER reason, the networks thought that "Extra, Extra" was of great importance so it was aired at 9pm. Hmmm...who's running the show down south in So Cal? I say a firing is in order.
Question: So what happened at the Premier Party that wasn't an actual premier, and didn't actually show an epidsode of The Office?
Answer: Watched Season 4 Finale, watched last week's Office, and watched the Pilot of 30 Rock (I'd never seen it and we keep hearing it's hilarious...yes, it was pretty funny)
Also, we ate Office related treats. The Evite specifically stated for all attendees to bring an "Office Related snack to share" and there were fabulous prizes.
Look how clever our friends are:
mixed berry yogurt by the Frisby's
b/c Pam's favorite yogurt is mixed berry
bat cookies by Smiths b/c of the bat episode when Dwight
trapped the bat in a bag over Meredith's head
Cupcakes by yours truly b/c
nothing says Dunder Mifflin Paper Co. like a tray full of sweetness
Bacon cooked on the George Foreman Grill by
the Galbraiths b/c Michael cooked his foot on his George Foreman Grill
An all-edible replica of a bird's eye view of the office by Austin & Whitney.
Pam on the left at the receptionist desk, Michael to the back in his office,
and Jim & Dwight at their desks in the middle
Jim & Dwight at their desks
(big blue blob is the water cooler...obviously b/c Dwight
wanted to hear the office "scuttlebutt")
Tyler's stapler in Jell-O by the Teuschers b/c Jim put Dwight's
stapler in Jell-O...again.
And the winner of the coveted "Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica." shirt & bag ensemble goes to the Galbraiths for the best Office-related snacky.
The runner-up award of "One Schrute Buck" magnetic board and "Office" themed stationary goes to Austin & Whitney.
Yes, I do realize that anyone who either doesn't watch or has never heard of "The Office" thinks I'm absolutely out of my mind. Fair call. But for those of you who share this appreciation with me, you get it.
Until next week...
